Where I stayed
At home: this was a day trip.
We started off the evening at Picans; a high end southern restaurant in Oakland. I had the fried chicken and we shared scallops and hush puppies as an appetizer. Desert of course was Pecan tart with butter milk ice cream. The food was great and the atmosphere was elegant yet comfortable.
After dinner we went to the Paramount Theater to watch an old Errol Flynn movie, "Captain Blood". The theater is wonderful and I can not say enough about it. I felt as though I was in a time machine.
The description on the website is as follows...
Oakland's Paramount Theater is one of the finest remaining examples of Art Deco design in the United States. Designed by renowned San Francisco architect Timothy L. Pflueger and completed in late 1931, it was one of the first Depression-era buildings to incorporate and integrate the work of numerous creative artists into its architecture and is particularly noteworthy for its successful orchestration of the various artistic disciplines into an original and harmonious whole.
